I have primarily worked with adolescents and adults coping with Trauma, Depression, Anxiety, and family members impacted by a loved ones addiction. In life we may have experiences where we did not cope effectively and those memories just stick with us. Along with those memories are negative ideas about the self and uncomfortable emotions. Through the use of EMDR and trauma focused approaches, this "old stuff" can be resolved to create a healing lasting change.

I realize people come to counseling for what appears to be a million different reasons, but ultimately people come to counseling because they are in pain. There are times when a loved one is struggling, and a family, couple, or child requires extra support. We all face painful changes in life such as loss or illness, divorce, conflict, addiction, self-worth, and identity issues. There are times when these changes also bring up issues from the past and counseling can help. I want to help you cope well and live according to your values and aspirations. Counseling is about improving your quality of life and instilling hope.

Life can often be difficult and emotions can feel overwhelming. Sometimes it feels like the rug has been pulled out from underneath us. Maybe an important relationship has ended, you have a loved one struggling with substance use or you would like to learn to navigate boundaries in your relationships with family, friends or a partner. Whatever it is that has lead you here, I'm glad you are reaching out. I hope to provide a space to you that honors your story and facilitates personal growth. I believe that each of us deserve to find healing and that includes you. Asking for help can be one of the bravest things we do.

Holly Johnson is a psychotherapist specializing in deep therapeutic healing work. Using her 15 years in the field to grow and evolve her practice, she now uses a highly intuitive, integrative approach for helping people to heal and transform old patterns into healthy life patterns. Why do deeper work? Without knowing, most of us have experienced trauma and negative conditioning in our childhood, and beyond. Usually it goes unrecognized if it does not "qualify" by our learned definition of trauma. Yet our unique patterning from our early experiences will be how we currently relate with the world.

Feelings of depression, fear, anxiety, confusion, anger, grief, trauma, and other struggles beset us all at times. I believe creating an environment where everyone can feel safe and heard is vital, and cultivating a therapeutic alliance to be alongside individuals as a nonjudgmental support in the journey to wholeness and independence. I listen for unique needs and preferences and utilize an eclectic and integrated approach to working with the whole person. With empathy and compassion I will also ask challenging questions to explore ideas, new ways of thinking and understanding, and guide intuitive discovery for meaningful change.

What type of Watkinsville mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Watkinsville?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
